Mysterious chalkings have been reported throughout NASA Langley Research Center. The puzzling messages appeared overnight and urge employees to take bizarre actions, such as smile, dance through crosswalks and skip to work. Safety officials tested the chalk and have confirmed that it presents no problem to employees. Langley spokesperson Marny Skora says management encourages employees to take risks, noting that as one chalking indicates, "Every noble work is at first impossible."...

In the opinion of many space historians, Langley's most important contribution to the Apollo program was its development of Lunar Orbit Rendezvous (LOR). Here, John Houbolt explains the critical weight-saving advantage of the LOR concept. The basic premise was to fire an assembly of three spacecraft into Earth orbit on top of a single powerful rocket. Without this successful mission concept, the United States may still have landed humans on the moon, but it probably would not have happened by...

A full-scale model of the Mercury capsule was tested in the Langley 30- by 60-Foot Full-Scale Wind Tunnel. Managed at Langley Research Center, the objectives of the Mercury program were quite specific -- to orbit a crewed spacecraft around the Earth, to investigate the ability of humans to function in space and to recover both human and spacecraft safely.

After Mercury came Gemini, the project that would put to the test the maneuvers that would be required if Apollo was to be successful. Gemini astronauts would have to practice the rendezvous and docking techniques necessary to link two spacecraft. Langley researchers built the Rendezvous Docking Simulator giving astronauts a routine opportunity to pilot dynamically-controlled scale-model vehicles in an environment that closely paralleled that of space.

The Scout program began in 1957 to build an inexpensive sounding rocket to carry small research payloads to high altitudes. Scout would eventually assist the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs by testing reentry materials, evaluating methods of protecting spacecraft from micrometeoroids, and examining ways of overcoming radio blackouts as a space capsule reentered the atmosphere. The first Scout launched at Wallops Island July 1, 1960. Credit: NASA

The WB-57 is one of only two kinds of aircraft in which crews can fly over 50,000 feet. The other is the U-2. ''We usually fly about 60,000 feet,'' (18,288 m) said Joe Gerky, WB-57 manager.

At the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay is a unique instrument platform: the Coast Guard's Chesapeake Lighthouse. Taking advantage of it's open ocean location far from typical land-based factors, Science Directorate researchers use the lighthouse to maintain a suite of instruments that provide continuous radiation measurements and validate or provide ground truth for the satellite-based CERES instruments. Collectively, the suite of instruments is called the CERES Ocean Validation Experiment (COVE)....

NASA 360 crew -- (L to R, Mike Bibbo, Kevin Krigsvold, Tom Shortridge) -- shooting in the Langley Full Scale Tunnel for their latest program on NASA's commitment to Aeronautics. This program will feature stories on the X-48B BWB scale model, The Deployable Energy Absorber (Helicopter Drop Test), and a segment on Aircraft Safety. Look for Langley's Dr. Faye Collier, Anna McGowan, Full Scale Tunnel, Landing Impact Research Facility, and much more in this episode, due out in early February....

A demolished area begins to show signs of new architecture as construction workers build NASA Langley's new headquarters building. The building will be 70,000 square feet (roughly 6,500 square meters) and is expected to be complete in 2010. It is the first of many buildings as part of the 15-year repair-by-replacement upgrade project known as New Town. After New Town's expected completion in 2020, NASA Langley will have six new buildings and two rehabilitated buildings. These buildings will be...

Image L64-4141 is available as an electronic file from the photo lab. See URL. -- Photographed on 04/22/1964. -- Representatives of NASA Langley and Boeing signed the Lunar Orbiter contract on 16 April 1964 and sent it to NASA headquarters for final review. Three weeks later, on 7 May, Administrator James E. Webb approved the $80-million incentives contract to build five Lunar Orbiter spacecraft. -- Published in James R.

Kathleen Devol monitors liquid nitrogen tanks in preparation for a Thermal Protection System Environmental Chamber test. Engineers at NASA Langley are conducting these tests to study how select materials behave in the extreme temperatures of space. The materials being tested, AVCOAT and PICA, are both candidates for the heat shield of NASA's next spacecraft Orion. Credit: NASA/Sean Smith

A half-scale model of the Orion Crew Module is lifted at the Landing and Impact Research (LandIR) Facility Tuesday, Sept. 22, at NASA Langley Research Center in preparation for a pendulum swing test where it will land on Kennedy Space Center simulated sand. The test helps engineers understand how a contingency land landing on sand would impact the crew module after a launch pad abort scenario. Credit: NASA/Sean Smith
